Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:
⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment
🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine
🔬 casually interested in #mitochondria and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

"neutrality" PSA Show more
Software & libraries are both designed as interventions in the world.
Neither can be "neutral"—they can either reinforce or alter existing power relations.
If you mistakenly believe they can be "neutral," you've always encountered ones designed for you & your various privileges.
Yesterday someone asked "how do you deal with [all my responsibilities]?"
Truthfully, I don't know
Partly I felt bad about not having done "enough" last year; partly I just got on with it and only noticed now that I'm all kinds of tired and actually not doing very well in some of these responsibilities

President Trump has directed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to conduct a mass roundup of migrant families that have received deportation orders, an operation that is likely to begin with predawn raids in major U.S. cities on Sunday, according to three U.S. officials with knowledge of the plans.
Pepe, /r/frenworld, and "why do Nazis keep appropriating otherwise innocent shit?" rant/miniessay Key Takeaways Show more
The main things to notice here are:
(A) Specifically, the three steps described in the first post in this thread,
which if you're interested should help you parse out the specific dynamics of "why did they make this post/image/etc.", and, might? help you recognize when some people are trying to start this kind of space.
(B) Most importantly, generally:
This is a RECRUITMENT strategy.
The primary audience/target here,
the people attracted by step one,
are people who are NOT fascist, but for whatever set of reasons are skeptical of leftists pointing at a thing and saying "this is fascist",
and interested enough to look into it,
and interested in community enough to want to join it for the sake of having genuine community.
capitalist hellscape, some help requested Show more
I'm poor and also my roommate's only ride during the day (we both are self employed) so it's a real blow to have my engine completely fucked by hyrdolocking. Mechanic asking just under 3k to fix it.

Question about CVs (boosts encouraged) Show more
I was a Mechanical Engineering undergraduate from 2016 to 2018, and decided to switch to Information Systems last year. My classes start in August.
What's the best way to disclose that on my CV?
Should I mention my past as a Mechanical Engineering student at all when applying to tech-related positions?
I consider it to be relevant when taking into account some other things I did, but don't know whether it be well received or not.
yeah so I ended up having to pay for my summer class out of pocket so I am even broker than broke right now. wish I could take more commissions to make some $ but I'm also.. just exhausted 😥
